The Waldron Sr High Lady Bulldogs don’t mess around when it comes to basketball. They practice hard and play even harder. So when they pick up a loss, instead of throwing in the towel and quitting, they pick themselves up, brush themselves off and get back in the game. Monday night was the first conference game of the season for the Lady Bulldogs. Hosting the West Fork Lady Tigers, the Lady Bulldogs knew they were going to have a fight on their hands.
“We got up seven points in the third quarter but then let it slip away at the end, falling 43-47,” explains Coach Josh Atchley. “Kudos to West Fork and Coach Selph. They were able to hit four big three’s in the second half.” The Lady Bulldogs now hold a 3-7 total season record.
Offensively, Chelsea Stidman ran the Lady Bulldog ship bringing in nearly half of the total points on the night with 21 along with three assists and seven rebounds. Stidman was followed by Rheagan Sanford with nine who also took three steals. And Hailey Stidman brought in eight points as well as being quick to the ball with 16 rebounds and one steal.
On Friday, December 20, the Lady Bulldogs will head north to Mansfield to take on the (3-4) Lady Tigers for the always entertaining “Battle for Scott County” rivalry game. Last season ended with each team taking two wins and two losses against one another with each final score gap merely points apart. So what is the weather forecast for this Friday night? It looks to be raining cats and dogs!
